" . . . we will also be passing data to Linkshare to indicate when a cookie is set during the checkout process. Our reporting has shown an increasing number of cookies being set at the very end of the checkout process where it's clear there is minimal influence on the customers buying decisions. In these instances, the referring affiliate will still be credited with the sale but at a reduced commission rate. "

Bad if you run a coupon site. Good if you run a content site. Unless they mean "only" the last referrer will be credited - and at the reduced commission level. Then the original referrer loses out entirely. Not good.

That's the way I read it also Bill, the first affiliate looses out entirely. And the last affiliate at / during check out gets a reduced %.Where's the Great Life of Affiliate Marketing Hiding?

This makes no sense.
If they are targeting coupon sites, after "reducing" the last referrer's commission, should somebody get the remaining commission?
There is no reason for them to reduce every commission from "cookies being set at the very end of the checkout process".
Very confusing wording.
